Jam jars

Most glass bottles and jars can be recycled. These items can go into your green bin or brought along to one of our recycling points.

  • Bottles and jars should be rinsed to remove any residue.
  • Corks should be removed - natural corks can be home composted.
  • At bottle banks, put the glass in the correct bank for clear, green or brown glass. Blue glass goes in with green glass.
  • Only use bottle banks during the day - the sound of smashing bottles can make a real racket and disturb people who live nearby!
